What to see during your tour in Cáceres with a rented minibus with driver

If you want to rent a bus for an excursion or trip that originates or terminates in Cáceres, we suggest including these stops in your itinerary:

Historic district of Cáceres

The history of Cáceres goes back more than 25,000 years, as evidenced by a cave with superior Paleolithic paintings. You can also visit a number of museums, admire medieval buildings, walk down cobblestone streets, and get to know the historic places in the old city.

Night visit with minstrels

A different way of getting to know the city’s historic district at nighttime is to be accompanied by minstrels who tell the history of the city at different stops at historic sites. This is a very original—and fun—way to visit the principal points of interest in the city.

Xocao Handmade

Located on el Paseo de Cánovas, this little shop has a cute design and sells exquisite chocolates. This is a great visit for gourmands and chocolate lovers.

Café Copas Aldana

You can find this particular café in the middle of the city’s historic district, on Orellana Street. This locale has a “chill out” décor that contrasts with the stately walls of the fifteenth century manor house. It’s a very original place to go and drink something while listening to live music.

Plaza de las Veletas

Located in the city’s historic district. La Casa de las Veletas, which houses the Provincial Museum, is in this plaza. The museum has exhibits of marble, historic documents, instruments of torture, archeological remains, and ethnographic items, among other things, along with its cistern, make this a must-see for visitors.
